December 2015 - October 2017

Sales Consulting role where I advise the customer on choosing the best driving system to suit his/her application in the health and beauty sector, bioengineering, automation, robotics and sensors.

Lead on defect management:
- Responsible for the analysis of customer's defective driving systems using the 8D methodology to approach and solve the issue:
- Make up a containment action, then work towards finding the root cause, next perform PCAs i.e rework of defective units, deliver RMA's...
- Support the D&E and Quality team in implementing an action plan but also prevent the re-occurrence of the issue by changing the process parameters, documentation / specification or through tools like control plans or FMEA.

Technical support for the driver/controller platform:
- Give support for the 4 quadrant operating PWM servo controller and 2 quadrant operating speed controller :
Help the customer to set up the servo-motor/controller to match his/her application (commissioning),
troubleshooting mostly involves Ethercat, CAN and serial compatible system bus problems.

Part of my job is giving technical support for the installed based machines in the customer production process:
The technical support occurs on line when it involves software issues i.e. inadequate use or misuse of the HMI control panel by the user, an I/O disturbance or a control signal issue through one of the controllers for example.
The technical support is on site when it involves specific hardware issues i.e. broken/defect parts .

Support Engineer   •   Astrata Europe (formerly Qualcomm Business Solutions Europe

January 2007 - May 2014

Technical Support (French, English, Dutch) for truck tracking systems:
Truck tracking systems transmit data to the fleet management software which collects necessary information about the vehicles condition and location: information such as fuel level, cargo temperature, driving style can be tracked but also driver's breaks.

Common issues I had to deal with are back-office software related i.e. router/internet configuration, carrier network unavailability, roaming issues, MSSQL server configuration, host server hiccups. But also hardware related: truck network configuration, power issues in the truck, signal losses, improperly mounted systems.
